2023.03.25 02:06 Jumpy_Inflation_7648 [MCU] What can we *realistically* expect from Avengers: Secret Wars in terms of its plot, characters, and impact on the MCU after it?

Now, I’m not a hardcore comic book fan. But I do have a basic understanding of both Secret Wars storylines. I have read tons of speculation and theories, some claiming that Doctor Doom will be the film’s main villain, the Beyonder will be made into a Kang variant, and that every live action Marvel character will pop up as cameos. Much of what I’ve read on this sub is pretty wild, and that’s why I’m interested in hearing more realistic speculations; speculations that aren’t fueled by fan expectations on what should happen, but rather on what has been setup in Phases 4 and 5 so far.
Here’s what I think will happen based on what has been established so far…
Since Kang is being set up as the next big bad of the MCU, I think it’s safe to assume that he’ll be the villain of both Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars. He or the heroes will be responsible for creating an incursion that will result in the creation of Battleworld by the end of The Kang Dynasty. Then in Secret Wars, the inhabitants of Battleworld will work together to take down Kang and his council. The ending of the film will usher in some major change in the status quo of the MCU going forward; possibly some sort of reboot with multiple characters from different universes living in one big universe.
I also think we should expect some more cameos, but of actors/characters we’ve seen already. I’m talking about Andrew Garfield, Tobey Maguire, the villains from No Way Home (possibly?), Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, and either Chris Evans as an older Steve Rogers or Robert Downey Jr. as a variant of Tony Stark.

2023.03.25 02:06 Outrageous_Self1413 Scapholunate injury

Worried about my way forward, Scapholunate injury.
18m, 5’9” 148 lbs. I have been having a weird gap like sensation in my wrist (right hand) not necessarily painful just felt as if it needed to be cracked, similar to cracking a finger. Thought very little of it. Performed strenuous activities, pain intensified, visited a orthopedic doctor, diagnosed me with Scapholunate Dissociation. The treatment prescribed was surgery, fixation with k-wires and I’ve read a lot of bad outcomes of this surgery and I fear I’ll have a disability prior to this but I’m at my wits’ end, the pain is increasing and clunking in the wrist has started. It has almost been three months since my visit . Is surgery the only option? Is this method a good method? Will I be ok?

Have a few 12x24 tiles (4-5) that I ended up with too much lippage on. How much work effort would it be to pull a handful out and reset? Have a overhead light that accentuates the trouble spots more, without it on only a few spots are noticeable.
Also have wedi system, not sure if that will make it harder or not?

2023.03.25 02:04 trekzinghard For react/js devs, can you recommend what concepts, tech, etc., should i learn for upskilling?

I've been a react dev (90% of the time using nextjs) for 8 months now. End of contract is coming up soon and im trying to upskill to prepare in joining the job market just in case i don't get another offer in my current company. Tech stack i used in the company are: Nextjs, Firebase, Typescript, Tailwind, and JEST and RTL for testing. I've also worked with wordpress (developed some plugins and themes) a lot so I learned PHP and MySQL as well. I mostly still want to work as a react dev for my next job, i enjoy working with it. However, a lot of job ads i see now require you to know some node.js or some knowledege/exp working with a relationional db. Initially, i was planning for my upkilling plan to be like this:
  1. Refresh react basics. (for interview purposes)
  2. Grind leetcode (easy-medium)
  3. Learn Redux (i've mostly just used react context for state management in my projects)
  4. Learn GraphQL
  5. Get better with testing.
Now i'm wondering if i'd be hireable with those skills/knowledege? Or should I add also try to add some node.js and db in my learning plan? Do you have any other concepts/tecth/etc you recommend that i learn to up my chances?

2023.03.25 02:04 Throwra-Accnt-4812 Married f35 and m35. Messaging ex from 12 years ago f35.

I've been with my spouse about 11 years now, married for a few years. Was with my ex about 5 years prior. Truthfully I've never gotten over my ex and still regularly have thoughts of them. We separated whilst really we still loved each other. I instigated the break up. No red flags either way, no big arguments or fights etc. Long story short it just wasn't the right time, mainly for me. A long break probably would have worked for us but that's not what happened unfortunately.
Now married but messaging my ex from 12 years ago (I didn't send the first message and there was a pretty genuine reason for the message).
Ex is also in a relationship.
Want my ex back and always have. Think now that my ex might feel the same but can't be certain as we / I held back a bit. But we did start talking about the past, reminiscing, answering unanswered questions etc.
Scared of the impact on others involved if this goes on or escalates. Don't know whether to throw caution to the wind and try get back with my ex (share my true feelings), or to end the chat with ex and continue on with spouse. Or even to just end it with spouse and leave regardless as I know I should be more committed emotionally.
Yes I'm a scum bag, I'm sorry.
Advice welcome........

2023.03.25 02:04 Parking-Escape1176 I have a feeling i fucked up at work and it's triggering my anxiety

So, for the context, i work at a outsourcing company for digital marketing and we are given clients to work with. I work in the email department and on a specific platform called Salesforce marketing cloud and responsible for all things emails, from setting up to deploying. I handle 2 clients at the moment. So one of the clients which is part time, his communication is very off, runs different simultaneous campaigns and their requests side by side. Even on calls he is never direct about anything, says a lot of irrelevant stuff that we need to filter out according to our requirements. And I too, started out a year ago, still learning everything about the platform and logics to be used for setting up customer journeys etc. I have people to go to for guidance but it's mostly to just check with them if I'm doing the right thing. They are not to be fully dependent upon. Just for consulting.
So there was this campaign he asked to set up and it was a lot of to and fro on this, some errors needed to be fixed n all. Don't want to go into details as you people might get bored. In conclusion what happened was that an email was supposed to be sent to 1k people but it got sent to 5k people and the client let us know about it. His email didn't mention any blame on us. He just stated that this has happened and please try to change the logic so it doesn't happen again. First, when we got the email regarding this, we were about to log off for the day and we usually do not handle request this late, also the person I used to go to for this client already logged off as I could see her status and we work night shift so it's not easy to reach out at 5 am when someone must be asleep. Since it was an issue, i looked into it and understood what would have happened to cause this error and found the fix and suggested it to client right away by saying we will be able to do it the next day since our day was already over.
Now, the thing is - 1. It was actually my fault that I didn't pay attention to small details and logic and not point it out to him about it. But I was not entirely at fault since the client is the one who approves on everything to be done and designs the campaigns, activates it too. We just implement it, marketing operations thing. But I should've paid more attention to the logics and notified him about it since the client consults us on things too even after being good at that platform. If my team lead looks closely on the email thread and understand the situation and asks me things about it in details, I'm sure he would see that it is kind of my fault to not understand the logic on the first place. 2. The fix i suggested him to do, although I am 90% sure it is the right fix, but because I'm still learning the platform and not confident enough on it (i should be, just lack of confidence in general, this is by far my big first mistake, mistake that actually led to emails being sent to wrong people) I have my doubts about the fix. There could be an effective and better fix to it for sure which experienced people would've known better, but still it's like I just need some validation.
This happened at the end of a Friday. I'm still waiting for replies from both the client and the person I consult too ( i texted to take a look and let me know if it's right or not). I thought I would have a nice relaxing weekend but this last minute thing triggered my anxiety.
I'm really really scared that the team lead might look into it and point out my mistake and will loose confidence and trust in me or the client would point it out. I am fine accepting my mistake and apologizing for it. I just hate when people loose confidence in me at work. I have unfortunately created my life around work and if I don't do well at work, I feel worthless, loose confidence and self esteem. I know this is not healthy, this is my first job, I'm just 23 but idk how to change this. And to be honest, i know the worst thing possible is I'll get fired, which i know won't happen, it's not that big thing. But I have this awareness that even if I get fired, the only thing that would be affected is how I feel about myself, confidence, self esteem and everything. I belong to a business family, nobody has asked me to get a job or work, i just do it for myself and be financially independent. One thing is I know I am qualified enough that I can get another job, may not be in this domain but the other. Another thing is I have saved enough to be jobless atleast a few months while I search for jobs. And even if I don't get a job, it's fine with everyone here. But just won't sit right with me, would feel like a failure.
So so sorry for the rant, this is my first time posting something for advice. Feel free to slap me with harsh truths but just don't be unnecessarily rude.
Thank you thank you so much in advance for everyone who read till here and responded.

2023.03.25 02:03 Boss_R4ge The strange and disappointing ending of Virgil Kaylock.

I just listened to what (I assume) was the last chapter of ‘The Strange Tales of Virgil Kaylock’
It was a neat little anthology-esc story. Mildly reminded me of a supernatural Sherlock Holmes.
The last story was…awful. It started off so strong then ended with a pathetic whimper as the FL, who always denied any feelings for Virgil and never acted like she had any, suddenly proclaims her love when Virgil tried to kill himself because he is suppothe vessel for the antichrist.
But when she says I love you don’t kill yoirself, suddenly the devil goes away and all is right with the world (yea those words are used)
So sad

2023.03.25 02:02 BigMagicJerk Tabletop Tweaks and Allied Spellcaster

I have TT installed and all of its additions. Does taking Life-Bonding Friendship and subsequently Allied Spellcaster for the teamwork feat still trivialize spell resistance? I know TT fixes the odd interaction where 2 fighters next to each other would both provide +4, but if I'm standing near 5 party members, 2 pets and a summon do I still get +16 for overcoming spell resistance? I don't mind if it was a bug and ends up only giving +2 - just means I won't be taking it.
Also, anyone know what the range is for 'adjacent'? I can't find it anywhere :O

2023.03.25 02:01 kp-- Douces Séparations

Sailesh sat listlessly watching the rain drops just lazily slapping the window pane he was next to. He'd just arrived from a flight not long ago. Not only could he still feel the strain the long flight had on his knees, he was yearning to perhaps, stretch them out. But an Asar in Kathmandu doesn't relent. The downpour was vicious, often making it difficult to have any fun time. Forget hiking, he'd be lucky to even get past the hotel without getting soaking wet. As he took another long swig of his cigarette, he contemplated the life choice that led him to the place he was currently. Surely, it'd mark a closure, perhaps seal the old wound. He'd relish this.
As his breath clashed with the pane, and fog slightly formed, he was interrupted by the host,"So brother, what will you be having today?". He impatiently waved him off, angry that the waiter had interrupted his train of thoughts. The waiter, rather meekly said,"So will you have anything else, sir? This is your 6th peg, Mother was wondering if you'd like anything else". Sailesh softly chuckled before replying "I'm waiting". As the waiter gave him a knowing nod, and gently faded away, he took another swig of the whiskey he was drinking. Cheap shit will always be cheap, in this shithole, he thought to himself. Still, anything to get that familiar burn down your throat, with the slight buzzy sensation in your temple. For the money he was tossing at it, he couldn't possibly complain. It would be that he dearly missed his scotch - his favorite poison. He rapped at the table impatiently, she hasn't changed a bit, had she? Always taking her sweet time. As he could make out the silhouette of a woman with a child through the foggy glass, he grew excited: "She came, she finally did!". Not only that realization made him jerk back from him day dreaming, he proceeded to straighten up, and pull his hair back. After taking a few moments to compose himself, he hailed the waiter silently to take away the glass and empty his ash tray. As the entrance door slowly opened, he could make out his once love of his life, slowly approaching him with a kid, his, presumably. Aakanshya was a woman of sophistication, and absolute grace. The moment she walked towards you, you'd feel a gentle breeze on your forehead, whilst the back of your throat dried out, and you just wanted to steal a gaze from her, as long as time allowed. Her full lips often made you aware that even despite not smiling, she had a soft, gentle curve that made her face anything but hard. Suffice to say, Sailesh felt a cocktail of emotions within him growling, as he looked at a woman he once loved over anything else.
As she sat down with the kid, Sailesh gently motioned towards her. After a brief eye contact, he felt as if they were pulled down, away from it. Perhaps he still had feelings for her. Perhaps he was here to find out why things happened, the way they did. Still, he could feel the pangs of that same constricting pain in his heart, as if someone, or something, held it. It took an effort breathing in. And thus, he started, "So Aaku...". Aaku gently smiled back, that same smile he now knew he yearned for more than 5 years. As she waved, the kid chimed in, "Is he the uncle you were talking about, mummy?". Aakanshya slowly nodded, then proceeded to speak, "Yes, Sailesh uncle here is my best childhood friend. We practically grew up together, just like you and Saakshi". "Eww, Momma grew up with a boy? That's so funny hahaha". "No Arya, uncle here was very good at tying my ribbons! Firstly, say hi to uncle, will you, dear?" Arya suddenly shouted, "Namastey Sailesh uncle!" in a manner that could only be described as being contagious. It was impossible not to have your heart melt right there and there, this some five odd years old brat, speaking in the cutest manner possible. Sailesh extended his hand "I'm Sailesh, how old are you?". Arya looked puzzled at the hand offered to her, promptly looking towards her mother for clues on what to do. As Aakanshya motioned Arya to shake his hand, Arya followed suit. Sailesh hasn't shook a hand that was more tender, warm in a while. As he dismissed her hand, he directed his gaze towards Aakanshya. "How long has it been, again?" he said, words slightly slurred. Perhaps the whiskey finally hit. As Aakanshya drew a long breath, Sailesh leaned back, reaching for his zippo. That's when he noticed her hard gazed, the same stone cold, disappointed pair of the most beautiful doe eyes one could imagine, staring through him. As he followed her gaze to Arya, it hit him that perhaps lighting a cigarette in front of a child, wasn't the best of decisions. Arya chortled,"Look momma, uncle smokes too, just like Daddy!". As Aakanshya frowned,"Momma are you about to shout at uncle?", with the most innocent of eyes. Sailesh bit his lips in a mixture of embarrassment, and restlessless. Yeah, fucking A man, fucking A, light a cig right in front of the kid.
"So how have you been?" Sailesh said, huffing after his own silliness. Aakanshya answered,"I'm doing great, Sailu, how are you doing?". "Doing fine. Company offered me a vacation plan, I rejected, caught the very first plane from Cali straight here so I could perhaps go visit old friends. But with this weather...", Sailesh chuckled. Aaku sighed, "Well, that's a nice change I suppose. You always were the overworker". As Sailesh motioned the waiter yet again, he asked Arya, bored, "So what will you have, Arya?" Arya took the menu, and immediately pointed at what she wanted : An icecream. Well, she was certainly her mother's child, this girl. Once the orders were placed, Sailesh spoke "So what are you doing these days?" Aakanshya slowly turned her head towards Arya, and said "Well, mostly taking care of Arya. Housework was much more difficult than I imagined", she smiled softly. "How long are you staying?" Sailesh sighed,"Hard to tell. I can return anytime, but I was looking to meet old faces here. Suffice to say that's nigh impossible at this weather. So I'm probably going to get holed up in a hotel till I get back home". "And how are your parents, how's Aunty doing?" "You know they're dead, Aaku. Why must you ask?" Aakashya's eyes widened,"When?". Sailesh bitterly replied,"It's been what, 2-3 years?" "I'm sorry, Sailesh, I didn't know that". Sailesh's lips curved ironically, as he smiled and retorted,"Well, it's none of your business anyway, so there". Before those words were barely out, he regretted saying it. "But I do care. And I'm sorry." Sailesh could see hints of tear well up in her eyes. "Sorry I wasn't there for Aunty and Uncle". Sailesh whipped back, "Well they'd not count on it, after all, you abandoned me". Aakanshya look at Sailesh, with a look of surprise, speechless. Arya, startled, looked at Aakanshya, "Mommy, are you crying? Are you about to have a fight with uncle, just like daddy?" Sailesh asked, opportunistically, "Do mommy and daddy get in fights often?" "Yes, daddy shouts at mommy, and mommy shuts the door and cries. It's really sad, you know -" Aakanshya interrupted Arya's monologue, and quietly motioned her to hush. So Sailesh went into brooding, before letting out his next question, "You're happy with him, aren't you?" He could feel Aakanshya visibly disturbed, silent. Perhaps blaming her from the get go wasn't the best of ideas. At the same moment, the orders were served, and that was the end of that. As mere small talked, veiled in pain were exchanged on both sides, Sailendra couldn't help but walk down back the memory lane.
It was that night, that had been their last. They had sneaked out of their friend's wedding together, got to his apartment, then started making love. Intimacy with her was a special time, he'd only been vulnerable with so many women. As they rolled over the bed, he had gotten up to look at the moon-lit fields across the window. He had sat down in the arm chair, contemplating the difficulties ahead in life. He was but merely deep in thought, when she had rolled over, glistening in sweat beads, whilst gently being caressed by the moonlight. That's when she'd said, "Sailu, we should get married, na?" He had but merely scoffed, looking at her saying, "Babe, I'm hitting the states next week, I won't be back for at least 4 years, you seriously think I'd be able to take care of myself, let alone you?!" Whilst running his fingers on her playfully, he'd find her smiling slightly, then turning over, pulling the blankets. And that was the exchange they had, before she abruptly called Sailesh a week after he landed on states, stating she was getting married soon. And him, in a foreign land, feeling utterly dejected, and betrayed. Why did she choose this banker, over him? What possibly could that bald jerk give her, that he couldn't?
As Sailesh was wading through the free fall of his thoughts, reality struck when Arya tugged at his jacket. "Uncle, will you come home? I'll show you my doll". Sailesh, frowning, shook his head. Suppose it was time to part ways. The visit had been extempore, after all. He had called her on messenger right as he landed, perhaps to make peace with himself. Though how exactly this meeting ended up making him any less disturbed than he already was: He wouldn't know. All he knew was the ship had sailed, and he was left out in the rain. As the bills were paid, and they stood in front of the restaurant under umbrellas, Sailesh said "Well, guess this is it then. Take care, alright?" As Aakanshya turned after nodding, he could have sworn he saw her back shake.
As he stood there, questioning himself, all the while lighting his cigarette, he couldn't help but kick himself for being an ass. Perhaps he went too hard on her. After all, she did come, didn't she? And yet, he was right there, in the same spot she left her, 6 years back. As the gentle pitter patters of droplets onto the puddle singed but meekly, he looked at the mother-daughter slowly walking away from her. He was but just there, looking at her, then her daughter, a spitting image of her, going away, engrossed in conversation. As he scratched his nape, he couldn't help but spot a familiar birthmark on little Arya. Something he had grown accustomed to, often bemoaned about for being unsightly. Then it dawned him, that perhaps, this would be the last time he'd see her, as he couldn't possibly face himself after today's charades.
Not after what just happened, not after what he said to her.

2023.03.25 02:00 SamuraiUX Trans women are women. But isn't it important that they're different, not the same as, those who are AFAB?

Stepping into a minefield here, just to share some thoughts/questions I don't know where else to share. Important note: I identify as a feminist cishet male - I taught university classes on sex and gender. The topic is important to me, and interesting, and I think we need to have discussions rather than shutting them down. That's my take.
So: I would say transwomen are women in all the ways that matter societally. That is, in terms of gender -- which is an entirely constructed phenomenon anyway -- any person ought to be able to identify with/take on any gender role or descriptor they feel applies to them and I can't think of a good reason to dispute it. Let me also say up front to be clear that there's no reason to ever harm, mistreat, or speak unkindly to any human being in my book, so certainly no reason to do so to a trans person.
My "controversial" stance, I think, is that I don't know if it behooves people who were AFAB and transwomen to treat them exactly them same in terms of the problems they face in the world, and in terms of their lived experiences. Let me give some examples:
- A transwoman has never and will never have a period. Some women have a lot of trauma around their first periods. In Jewish culture, for example, some girls get slapped in the face when they have their first menses.
- A transwoman has never and will never have a miscarriage or give birth. This is certainly a big and important lived experience of many women that can be joyful and/or traumatic.
- Unless they transitioned very young, a lot of transwomen won't have had men expose themselves to them in dark alleys as teens, or been masturbated at. Because at the age this happens traumatically to a lot of young women (say, 12/13) many transwomen were pretransition, and men rarely expose themselves to or frotteurise young men (something like 57% of women experienced this sometime in their teen years; the percentage for young boys is much much lower).
- Same issue for teen/pretransitioned transwomen: 1 in 5 women but only 1 in 71 men have been raped.
On the other end of the spectrum, transwomen face some things that people who were AFAB rarely experience in terms of homo/transphobia, physical beatings, fear of revealing their history or their genitalia for fear of beating or death, etc.
I'm not meaning to use these differences to "show" anyone how transwomen aren't "really" women or to separate them in any meaningful way based on treatment, law, or policy. But I am meaning to point out that there may be issues that people who were AFAB face that transwomen may not truly understand (though they can certainly empathize), and that the reverse is also true. When we say "a transwoman is a woman in every single way!" it strikes me that we're robbing people who were AFAB of some lived experiences that they do NOT share with transwomen, and likewise we're conflating the unique lived experiences of transwomen with the everyday garden variety person who's AFAB that's likely always "passed" as female and never had that questioned.
Ultimately, then, in order to serve the needs of both, and to honor both's very unique lived experiences, treating all women as "the same" is really a bit of a thoughtless oversimplification, isn't it? In the same way that saying "all Asians experience X the same way" would be inaccurate and unfair to the different experiences had by Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Thai, Filipino, etc., people.
NOW: I understand that some of "transwomen are women in all ways" is simply an act of solidarity, because no one is telling Vietnamese people that they aren't really Asian and beating them up for it. I recognize that idiots need to be reminded and reinforced frequently that generally speaking, there's no reason to treat a transperson any differently than the gender that they present as. But isn't there a higher-level discussion to be had here among people who already accept that premise about the ways in which we can serve both communities by -- after, of course, in some ways uniting them and making them completely equal -- recognizing the ways in which their experiences have been markedly different?
I am 100% open to all thoughtful, civil, reasonable, non-insult-heavy responses from people who are interested in this discussion, even if they disagree with my premises. Know that if your entire response is an ad hominem attack, entirely based on the fact that I'm male and making no attempt to interact with the intellectual content of my post, or just straight-up mean and nasty, I will be unlikely to respond or I may simply block you. The internet is an ugly, ugly place, and I'm not into it. I'm a human being, too, with a puppy and a wife I love very much. Remember that as you type your response! I promise to give you the same respect back if you do.

2023.03.25 02:00 JMLMemer Decided to wait for things to end first before saying this...

Yes, we get it. The situation is done(at least on paper and from what we see it is anyway). But to tell people to move on immediately is quite ridiculous(not ridiculous in itself but as if JJ did nothing crazy). JJ quite literally came for Wade in the most unusual manner possible. Many people in this subreddit don't know what it's like to have their reputation called into question at the expense of something important to them like careers, families or even lives. I'm all for forgiving(I even go as far as to not make it a matter of forgiveness when someone wrongs me and I let it go) but you should be able to empathize with everyone who trusted that JJ wouldn't be so low. We all knew JJ's ego was bigger than his forehead and that's cool. But when it doesn't make you accept full responsibility towards someone you have wronged, it sucks to be around you. Many plastic KSI fans do this cycle where they try to play pseudo-PR and minimize the situation, defending him but as soon as JJ apologizes, they hit you with the "he apologized, now move on" as if they didn't just defend such actions. It's also hypocritical from said plastic fans when they say things like "should we continue to hate him?". But when Dillon Danis or Jake Paul do something, it's something that they can never come back from. I'm not a supporter of Danis or Jake, but I at least keep it a buck 99 when someone does something right or wrong regardless of who it is(I'm saying this as a fan of JJ long before he dropped his song Creature). It's also ridiculous how people can't stand Kavos even tho he's telling the truth😂. I'm not saying you have to be like "yasssss queen" but for you to hate him and dishonestly say he's manipulating his audience is wrong. As a Kavos fan I can agree he milks situations but every creator does that😂😂😂(they make money by repeatedly doing stuff. Y'all don't get this worked up when JJ continues making try not to laughs or reddit videos). You let him go when he defends Logan Paul's failed escapades(which is confirmed that he hasn't paid his supporters back for) but get angry when people actually hold him accountable for it. Some people think we should got back to making memes for the reddit day as usual as if this situation isn't why we've been coming up with hilarious memes as of late😂. It's cool to be a part of JJ's fan base, but keep that same energy across the board. It's actually unfortunate but it took JJ telling a whole lie for us to finally tell JJ enough is enough. As a small business owner, I'm nowhere near JJ's level in business. But at 22 years of age, I can at least say that I know how to do my research and verify the facts. From a business perspective(if not from a personality/character or boxing standpoint) I've lost respect for you because even though I'm not expecting you to know everything, the information that comes directly to YOU should be info you make a point to verify and taking Keem's word(of all people yikes) or mams was poor insight and oversight from you and a man who worked so hard for you and your vision almost got incapacitated for it. You should do something about those people(obviously up to you) and also stop and think before you say or do something you regret. I'm not gonna stop watching your videos or unfollow your socials, but you have a long way back especially for the people who had your back since the beginning(not so much for the fake fans since they just see you as an angel who deserves unlimited tries). What's more, Wade is W for standing on his square and I wish him the best on his future endeavors(he also gained a new sub in me). Also, JJ should do something about the people behind the scenes who have an issue with the guy using a drink that God forbid is better than prime😂😂😂. W JJ's parents for not getting involved, W Ethan for saying it like it is and idk about the other Sidemen who didn't understand the whole situation but no hard feelings toward anyone anyway. Finally, Mo came outta nowhere with his response to Kavos😂. Kavos was right and I think Mo just wanted the situation to end(which is fine) but for him to come from the woodwork to tell Kavos that when he said nothing the whole time was not it. He should've stayed quiet. Do better supposed fans of KSI. Hold JJ and everyone regardless of what childish or genuinely justified feelings you have toward them, to the same standard. That's all...

2023.03.25 02:00 StepwiseUndrape574 GTA 5 Surpasses 150 Million Units Sold As GTA 6 Hype And Rumors Heat Up

Grand Theft Auto V is still going strong nearly eight years after it first debuted on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (remember those?), followed by a slightly newer re-release on Windows PCs and the the PS4 and Xbox One. To date, publisher Take-Two Interactive has sold over 150 million copies of GTA V on various platforms.
The publisher revealed the impressive sales stat as part of its earnings report for its fiscal first quarter of 2022. Looking at the data from the previous quarter, it means T2 sold an additional 5 million copies in the past three months. Not too shabby, given that GTA V is far from a new game at this point. That is not the end of it, either.
T2 plans to launch an "expanded and enhanced version" for the latest generation game consoles, those being the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, on November 11, 2021. Developer Rockstar Games had previously said the updated version will bring "new features and more" to the table, but the details are still largely a mystery.
"The new generation versions of GTAV will feature a range of technical improvements, visual upgrades and performance enhancements to take full advantage of the latest hardware, making the game more beautiful and more responsive than ever," Rockstar Games said last year.
We presume the retooled version of GTA V will tap into the fast storage capabilities of modern consoles, to drastically reduce game load times. It will also leverage the newer hardware in the latest gen consoles, namely the custom SoC based on AMD's Zen 2 CPU cores and RDNA 2 graphics.

2023.03.25 01:59 crazygrumpy EUR/USD edges lower, and tests 1.0750 support as a triple bottom stays in play

EUUSD edges lower, and tests 1.0750 support as a triple bottom stays in play
  • EUUSD is set to finish the week with decent gains of 0.89%.
  • US economic data was mixed, though it portrays a deceleration of the economy.
  • ECB policymakers remain focused on tackling high inflation levels in the Eurozone.
As the New York session finished, EUUSD fell 0.64% or 69 pips. A risk-on impulse did not help the Euro (EUR), which, pressured by a banking crisis threatening to spread to the Eurozone, weakened the shared currency. At the time of writing, the EUUSD is trading at 1.0759.

EUUSD drops on US Dollar strength, weak EU PMIs

Despite experiencing another turbulence, the US equities market is poised to finish the week positively. Deutsche Bank’s stock experienced a sharp decline due to concerns over the possibility of default, reflected in a 220 basis point increase in Credit Default Swaps (CDS). Although this harmed Wall Street at the beginning of the session, investors appeared to dismiss these fears and instead speculated that the Federal Reserve (Fed) would lower interest rates in 2023.
Wall Street finished the week with gains. Deutsche Bank’s stock experienced a sharp decline due to concerns that the bank may default, as evidenced by the 220 basis point rise in Credit Default Swaps (CDS). Although this initially caused some concern on Wall Street, investors ultimately dismissed these fears, speculating that the Federal Reserve (Fed) would reduce interest rates in 2023.
St. Louis Fed President James Bullard expressed that rates should be raised further to reach the 5.50%-5.75% range, which would mean an additional 75 bps of rate hikes on top of the Fed’s recent increase of 4.75%-5.00%. Meanwhile, Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic commented that the decision made in March was not easy, as there was a lot of debate and it was not a simple choice.
Thomas Barkin, the President of the Richmond Federal Reserve, stated that he felt the banking sector was very stable when they arrived at the meeting. Therefore the conditions were suitable for implementing monetary policy as intended.
The S&P Global PMI showed improvement in March, surpassing both expectations and the data from the previous month. Although the Manufacturing Index remained in a state of contraction, Durable Good Orders saw a 1% drop, which was still an improvement compared to the reading from the previous month.
In the Euro area (EU), March’s S&P Global PMIs were positive, except for the Manufacturing component, which remained in recessionary territory. European Central Bank (ECB) policymakers crossed news wires, led by the ECB’s President Christine Lagarde, saying there’s no trade-off between price and financial stability.
Bundesbank President Joachim Nagel commented that a pause is not in order as inflation, seen averaging around 6% in Germany, the euro zone’s biggest economy, will take too long to come back to the ECB’s 2% target.“Wage developments are likely to prolong the prevailing period of high inflation rates,” Nagel said in Edinburgh. “In other words: Inflation will become more persistent.”

EUUSD Technical analysis

The EUUSD failed to hold to its previous gains, though the triple bottom chart pattern remains in play as long as it stays above 1.0759. A breach of the latter would invalidate the pattern, and open the door for further losses. On the upside, the first resistance would be 1.0800, followed by the 1.0900 figure, ahead of the YTD high at 1.1032.

2023.03.25 01:59 bmcthomas Advice please re my son

My son is 23, used marijuana and cocaine mostly, we've been around and around with those. About 8 months ago his new girlfriend introduced him to her DOCs, xanax and percocet/oxy (and probably fentanyl). Of course he chose to do them, but part of me is so mad at her for bringing that crap into his life.
I didn't know about the opiates until this past week, when they decided to self detox and ended up in the emergency room twice in 36 hours.
She got into a 28 day program (I hope she stays), but there were no beds for him. He's on a wait list and can sign up for outpatient while waiting. At his darkest moment of withdrawal, puking and defecating all over himself, he was ready to go anywhere. Now that it's day 5, he feels better and is less and less interested in treatment. He says he won't relapse because he never wants to feel that way again.
He lives with me. I've said that getting into a program is a condition of being allowed to live here. Is there a point to being in a program if he doesn't think he needs to be there? I'm trying to end our codependent relationship, accept that he will likely relapse, stop trying to control him (because I can't), and am working on preparing myself to accept that he may end up homeless, he may end up dead, and those are his choices.
But of course I love him. I'm also so angry with him. What he put his sister through, me, our whole family this week was horrific and traumatic.
I keep telling him I love him, because I don't think it helps to be berated and shamed. But I'm also very angry and sometimes that comes out.
where is the line? Is it trying to control if I tell him to delete all his dealers from his phone while I watch? and check his phone randomly? Take away his car keys (my name is on the title too I cosigned for it). Are these just empty gestures and won't matter anyway because he'll always find a way to get drugs? How am I supposed to go to work if I have to watch him constantly to keep him clean? I have had family helping all week when I can't be here, but next week he'll be alone and I assume that even with no car or no phone he'd find a way.
I'm looking for a therapist for me and my daughter. I don't know if she will participate. She found them and had to call 911 the first time. She'll never get over what she saw. I was the second ER trip and I won't get over it either. I truly thought they were going to die in front of me.
Anyway, I'm exhausted, feel guilty for not forcing him into treatment for the cocaine and marijuana, when he was underage. I took him to psychiatrists, he wouldn't talk. Wouldn't take meds. I should have tried harder. I feel like I just ignored what I didn't want to know. He needed me and I wasn't there. I have to be there now. But it feels like its too late.
This is rambling, I'm sorry. I just feel so helpless. I'm so afraid he's going to die.

2023.03.25 01:59 Veliarbery Problem with walking

I've tried to get off amph, last dose was 23.03, 5;00, around 10:30 I went to school, get back at 13:00, went to sleep, then I woke up at 18:00 and my mind and also my eyes were pullsing but I had to get to work. Went back and went to bed. Again I woke up 7:00 next day to get ready for Uni, but I came back to some after going to bus stop cuz it was nearly impossible for me to stand still and even sit, I get back some, woke up at 17:00, and it was still impossible for me to stand or even sit. My body felt very warm, I had cold sweats, my mind was foggy and I wasn't able to do anything. I had to redose cuz of my work.
How to stop speeding? I'm not able to take 3-4 days off to only lay in bed. And it's not like I can force myself to go walking or sitting cuz minute after minute I'm starting to get more sweaty and the only thing my mind is saying me is "go to bed, now, or we are fucked".
I want this to end.
Should I just slowly get off it? I've done extremly high doses (5g in around 30 hours) so lowering dose everyday seem like plan.
Please, help.

2023.03.25 01:59 crazygrumpy GBP/USD recedes and consolidates around1.2230 on mixed UK data, strong US Dollar

GBP/USD recedes and consolidates around1.2230 on mixed UK data, strong US Dollar
  • GBP/USD is set to finish the week with gains of around 0.40%.
  • Federal Reserve officials remained committed to curbing inflation to its 2% target.
  • Mixed economic data in the UK, a headwind for the GBP/USD, despite expectations for a Fed rate cut in 2023.
GBP/USD finished the week on a lower note after it reached 1.234, the high of the week, but retreated as sentiment dampened. On Friday, the GBP/USD is trading at 1.2228, retracing 0.47% at the time of typing.

Fed policymakers ready to combat inflation, UK data paints a gloomy economic scenario

The US equities market prepares to end the week in positive territory despite a renewed round of turbulence. Deutsche Bank stock fell sharply on fears that the German bank could default, as shown by the Credit Default Swaps (CDS) rising 220 basis points. Although it hurt Wall Street as the session opened, investors shrugged off those fears, as they speculated the Federal Reserve (Fed) would cut rates in 2023.
Federal Reserve officials crossed wires in the session. St. Louis Fed President James Bullard noted that rates need to get to the 5.50%-5.75% range, which would require an additional 75 bps of rate hikes after the Fed’s raised rates to the 4.75%-5.00%. Earlier comments from his colleague Raphael Bostic from the Atlanta Fed said that March’s decision was not easy. “There was a lot of debate. This wasn’t a straightforward decision.”
Richmond Fed President Thomas Barkin commented that the situation in the banking sector “felt very stable by the time we got there (to the meeting). So the conditions were right to do monetary policy the way we want to do monetary policy.”
On the data front, the US economic calendar featured the S&P Global PMI improved in March, exceeding expectations and the prior’s month data. The Manufacturing Index stood in the contractionary territory. At the same time, Durable Good Orders plunged by 1% but improved compared to the last month’s reading.
The UK economic docket featured Retail Sales, which beat estimates on an annual and monthly basis, while the S&P Global PMIs were worse than foreseen. The Manufacturing PMI failed to improve, while the Services and Composite PMIs, ticked slightly down.
Catheryn Mann, a member of the Bank of England, said she voted for a 25 bps rate hike compared to a larger one because she saw signs that inflation expectations are falling.

GBP/USD Technical analysis

Given the backdrop, the GBP/USD extended its losses, boosted by a stronger US Dollar. Even though the GBP/USD hit a daily low at 1.2190, buyers could hurdle the 1.2200 mark. It should be said that failure to achieve a daily close above 1.2300 could exacerbate a fall below 1.2200, which could extend to the 20-day EMA around 1.2135. Once cleared, the 200-day EMA would be up for grabs. On the flip side, buyers reclaiming 1.2300 can pave the way to the weekly high of 1.2343.
